1772. Detail from an engraving by Thomas Pennant, "Women at the Quern."  This shows two women using a quern, or hand mill, to grind grain.  You can see the petticoats, jackets or shortgowns, and checked neckerchiefs worn by the two women, and what appears to be a ring brooch fastening the neckerchief of the woman facing the viewer.
